Brief Outline

The object of the game is to win points for you and/or your team by correctly forming 'can/can't' statements from the cards in the box without losing them by hitting a 'Bomb!' card.


Materials Needed

  • DekiruBingo cards: Print the ‘can/can’t’ flashcards and the ‘bomb’ cards on thick paper and laminate if possible. These are credit card sized cards so they’re easy to laminate, and no cutting if your school has business card sized laminating packets.
  • Large container to use as a ‘lottery box’. It’s worthwhile to decorate a reuseable box for this – it adds a bit of excitement and drama. Put the bomb cards and the target cards in the lottery box (about 1 bomb for every 10 cards).


Detailed Explanation

  1. Explain that they must decide how many cards (1-3) before commencing play and that one card = one point, but a ‘Bomb’ means you lose all your points. Explain that drawing one card is the safest option, keeping in mind the max points they will be able to receive is also one point. Drawing more cards means more chances to draw a 'Bomb' but also a chance for more points.
  2. Students take turns drawing cards from the box and saying the sentence associated with the card. If playing as a team, players will take turns to draw one card each. If playing as individuals, players will draw consecutive cards until they reach their target number. If a ‘BOMB!’ card is drawn, that player or team lose all points on the board and start again from zero.
  3. Play until the cards are gone (or until you think it’s enough – whichever comes first)
  4. The winner is the team or player with the most cards at the completion of the game.


Teaching Suggestions

  • Go through the cards with the JTE prior to playing the first time.
  • After teaching 'can' and 'can't' (JTE to give the English translations), hand out the cards (one to each student) and have them form sentences according to their card.
  • I then do a drawing game (five second drawing or blindfolded drawing) to further consolidate the vocabulary and then finish with this game (this is actually an entire lesson plan, not 'just a game' :-))



  • Generally speaking, sports that use balls use the verb "play". Non-ball sports use "do".
